Wow. I came here not really knowing what I wanted, feeling like I’m not really in the mood to read any of this stuff right now. I decided to click on this thread because of the interesting title, but was still thinking that I really jsut don’t want to be here.
And this could not be more appropriate. I was just thinking almost the exact same thing. And saying almost the exact same prayer.
Unfortunately, I never found the answer to these questions, and it’s too late now. The damage is done. So I wish you luck and hope you do find success and happiness in life. Whatever you do, please do find a solution. Get some help if you need to. Don’t let your whole life go by while you sit in front of the TV avoiding it.
My mother said something to me a little while ago that really hit home. I was sulking because there were some things I wanted to do but I couldnt because there was too much cleaning to be done. Frustrated and annoyed, I said “I might as well just spend the rest of my life cleaning!”
And mother replied “Well, that’s what life is.”
Of course, I immediately rejected this answer. I snapped at her, saying something like no, it isn’t, have you ever heard of watching TV or playing games?
After it had awhile to sink in, and after my attempts to do both what I wanted and the cleaning failed miserably, I realized she was absolutely right. And I really, really wish I had learned this lesson earlier in life. I know she tried to teach me, but it just never stuck, I never learned.
Trust me when I say this, you can not avoid the inevitable. Those dishes have to be washed. It’s just a fact. And the more you let things pile up, the deeper you dig the hole, the harder it is to climb out of.REPORT ABUSE
